Jet Li’s One Foundation to Launch Ocean Heaven Project
In a news conference last Friday, Jet Li’s One Foundation is launching the Ocean Heaven Project to help needy children. The name of the project came from one of the movies that starred Jet Li that told a story of an autistic child.
The project is to help children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and other disorders, for which the organization also released a strategic development model for the year 2011 up to 2013. The foundation is dedicated to building a professional and a transparent charity platform that will be used from 2011 to 2013 that will focus on disaster relief, childcare and training for charity professionals.
200 organizations have already joined the Ocean Heaven project, and the Shenzhen’s Charity Association has donated 2 million yuan to the project. Gionee Communications Equipment Co. has pledged to donate 1 yuan for each Gionee mobile phone they sell and have set the donation at ten million yuan.
